Characteristic typeface graphical design, hexagon with double wings like a flying bird with the meaning of development and freedom. In the hexagon the capital letters M and S that stands for Microelettrica Scientifica, acronym by which the company is well known in most part of the world.


In 2005 Microelettrica became a subsidiary of Knorr-Bremse Rail Vehicle Systems. The logo consists of a combined wordmark and image trademark. The two elements always appear together on one line.


To strengthen the Knorr-Bremse brand a uniform look across the Group has been created resulting in the Knorr-Bremse’s current portfolio of separately evolved brands into a cutting-edge brand architecture with the Knorr-Bremse figurative mark, the font and the blue color across all major company brands. The goal is to strengthen the brand recognition by establishing a clear visual association with the corporate brand and to reinforce the perception of each individual company following our new brand values Innovative, Leading and Reliable. The re-branding for “Microelettrica Scientifica” foresees the adaption of the existing logo and shortening the brand name to “Microelettrica”
